Abandon All Hope Ye Who Enter Here
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 24/04/2009 15:28:49
Yet antother whirlwind, chaotic black metal release from Deathspell Omega, but this time featuring one of their - dare I say it? - catchiest moments, which can be found during the first five minutes. It's a challenging listen overall for any fan of the genre but utterly satisfying with its labyrynthine composition and wonderful production. The lyrics are also peerlessly crafted and reflect deep meditation on the subjects of apostasy, the coming of the Son Of Perdition and the infernal majesty associated with this precursor to the prophesised End Of Days. Deathspell's intention here, it seems, is to almost rejoice in this fleeting victory of the free human will over the shadow of God.
Thinking about these themes now, one can't help imagine Yeats' 'rough beast' slouching towards Bethlehem to be born...at last.
Warning: This is not for the casual listener of metal music, nor black metal for that matter. If you have never heard this band before, be patient and treat the lyrics as one would some poetical verse and take the time to analyse. This is music for those who seek something truly extraordinary. There are really no words for such an experience as listening to this record, only feelings of reaching the summit of black metal art and realising that no other band can create such a horrifying atmosphere.
